Ambient Moog Mother 32 Demos by Alastair Wilson

001//Slumber [Ambient] - 2x Mother 32s and Eventide Space

Published on Nov 3, 2017 Alastair Wilson

"A dark, melodic, semi-self-generating modular patch using 2 Mother 32s sent through an Eventide Space hall reverb, using Ableton Live as a tempo source. A slight bit of compression is added to tame some of the more insistent bass surges.

The patch is only semi-random because the notes come from sequences based off the C minor triad; the Assign outputs' random stepped voltages do the rest!

002//Awakening [Melodic] - Mother 32 and Eventide Space

Published on Dec 4, 2017

"This is a melodic, improvised demo of how a single Mother 32 can play a bass line and melody at once, sent through an Eventide Space shimmer reverb, without any other processing or effects. The LFO is used as the bass here.

The idea is that the Assign output can send a clock out pulse on each step of the sequence. This pulse can be changed into a constant voltage: make a 1-note sequence, give it 4 ratchets, and turn the tempo up. Now, whenever the sequence plays, there is a constant voltage output from the Assign output. Attenuate this via the VC Mix knob, and send to the LFO rate. Tune the LFO to the lower of the 2 notes you want, then press play on the sequencer and tune the higher note via the VC Mix knob. Patch an LFO output to the Ext Audio input and mix it with the VCO.

You now have a Mother 32 which can play a bass line and melody at the same time! Stop and start the sequencer to change the bass note.

Sonicsmith Introduces the Modulor A1 Synth

Modulor A1 synth intoduction Published on Dec 4, 2017 Sonicsmith

"We introduce the Modulor A1 synth.

It's a semi-modular, analog music synthesizer that can create traditional sounds but extreme modulations as well.
It runs on standard 9V pedal PSU and has 1V/octave pitch input."



Our newest synth is not audio controlled but can come as a perfect accompaniment to them.

In fact The Modulor A1 will enhance any existing analog synth rig, allowing them to enrich their sound beyond belief. The Modulor A1 contains a VCO, LFO (each sync-able), two VCAs (one dedicated to the VCO and the other to the LFO), and numerous patching options. Both VCO and LFO can be square or triangle waves and a switch sends LFO to modulate VCO frequency for some vibrato (at lower LFO rates) or FM (at LFO rates up to 200Hz) effects.

The Modulor A1 is here to dive deep into modular synthesis in the 9V pedal environment. This Voltage Controlled Synthesizer has two audio outputs. One at regular line level (+4dBu) via big jack, and the other is a mini jack on the top panel (9V). This can be fed into a modular synthesizer environments if one wants to use the VCO voice through his Eurorack inputs for example. Another use for this mini jack oscillator is a ring modulation source on the Squaver P1 or any other CV input for that matter. You will get surprised of the results every time you patch it to a different CV destination. As a stand-alone synth the Modulor A1 has quite a bit of power as well. Allowing you to make all kinds of effects and melodies without even a single patch cable. Of course when you consider a few mini-jack to mini-jacks cables the possibilities are more exiting and you'r doomed to fall into an endless pool of tweaking. Either as a companion to our Audio Controlled Synths or along with your own modular synths, this handy 9 X 10 cm synth is a tiny version of a modular synth. The VCO pitch input is 1V/octave and has a 9V minijack output on the front. The other VCO output is a big jack on the back at line level unbalanced+4 dBu. VCO sync input will reset the wave's position to zero every time a threshold of 0V is crossed. The LFO sync input threshold is 3.0v for compatibility with most gate signals. Two knobs for pitch offset 20Hz-20kHz and the other knob is -4-+4 semitones.

VCO, LFO and two VCAs

9V standard pedal PSU

VCO with two outputs: a big jack +4 dBu post VCA and a minijack 9V out without VCA to control as clock or mix into Eurorack system.

Sync input on both the LFO and the VCO

LFO from 0.2 Hz up to 200Hz for FM synthesis

“LFO to VCO pitch in” switch for instant satisfaction"

Circuit Bent Kawai K1m sequenced by Circuit

Published on Dec 4, 2017 HardtekStudios

"This Kawai K1m is up for sale on eBay now!
I Circuit Bent this Kawai K1m e few years back, but have barely used it. So it is time to pull it out, hook it up and make some crazy noise with it! Somehow, over the years, it has developed a glitch where it has a pulsing sound with any patch that has a lot of sustain and release, so I guess you can call it perm-bent. It still is very usable, and even without any bend it sounds pretty good. The Novation Circuit is sequencing the K1m via midi. Circuit is also providing the drums."

via this auction

"This Circuit Bent Kawai K1m has 5 additional switches that create different tonalities and can SIMULATE bit crushing FX, Octaving FX, Ring Modulation, etc. THERE IS A GLITCH THAT CAUSES LONG, SUSTAINED SOUNDS TO HAVE A PULSING EFFECT TO THEM. NO MATTER THE POSITION OF THE SWITCHES. To turn off all bends, switches must be pointing to the left/outside end of case with the exception of the 2nd to bottom switch.

This synth comes from the 80's and has been user modified to have extra switches that can "scramble" the digital information that makes up the sound. The switches only affect sound, they don't affect any other operation of the unit, so it still reacts as it should and responds to midi very well."

"Juergen Michaelis - the head of JoMoX Berlin - giving insights of the history with HerrSchneider once entering the world of synths and drummachines roundabout 20 years ago to help Juergen as a sales rep, after they met each other in a totally different world.

Introducing the wonderful concert of Panic Girl and Jericho on Superbooth17 and showing the gig of Juergen himself with his AKAHSA synth on Superbooth16 this is quite good entertainment for all of us at least knowing the scenery nowadays or one of the products.

Still the live introduction of the ALPHABASE by the inventor himself is showing the fun he has with his own baby still nowadays as he already had 20 years ago, it should be passion."

"Far Away...
A combination of keyboard synths and the modular 5U & 3U, multi-tracked to Cubase.
A simple pair of chord progressions outlined with various step sequencer parts and multiple poly sequential controllers feeding a multitude of oscillators and filters of the large format modular.
The Behringer DeepMind12 performed a few delicate arpeggios along side the Roland System 8 and JV-1080 chords.
An Intellijel Metropolis evened out the step sequencer duties with a few tracks of a simple 9/8 round in differing time counts.
All sounds were performed by the 5U. The clock was from a MIDI/dinsync source generated by Cubase and sent to the Suite & Tie Guy Time Buffer and ALM's Pamela's Workout for distribution about the modular.
